An affectionate and affecting tribute.
The film makes excellent use of archival footage and has a heartwarming, spirited atmosphere, but also tends toward repetitiveness.
. . . the fact remains that despite death threats and worse, this trio of men had the courage of their convictions and the strength of character to speak out.
Powerful stuff, remembering what happened afterwards in America and Australia and also that dozens of Mexican protesters were killed by the police at the time.
The IOC furthers its reputation for frigid pomposity in Matt Norman's documentary about black-power-saluting athletes.
A moving and worthwhile tale.
Fascinating, well constructed and extremely moving.
A comprehensive, well-structured deconstruction of an important socio-political moment.
A powerful and poignant theme, but Salute would perhaps have worked better as a TV documentary.
A valuable reminder of how athletes can take a courageous stand.
This wonderful humanitarian story -- especially relevant on the eve of the Beijing Olympics -- deserves to be told and it's a bit of a surprise it hasn't been told before, while Peter Norman was still alive.
On one level, it is a story of real idealism, the youthful sort that the Olympics are supposed to be about; on another, it's about the corruption and betrayal of those ideals in the way the Olympics are actually run.
